I'm not much on describing wines so I'll just say I really like this one. World Market has it for $13 locally, if you can find it at the $10 level that seems common on the internet, it's a real value.

A bit of black pepper and baking spices on the nose, slightly herbal and still quite hot. Deep blackberry fruit with a lot of earth and leather palate. A thick and rich wine with a nice long finish.

Herbal notes with cherry, oak, vanilla, chocolate, and tobacco. Good tannins and mild sweetness. For the price, its very good.

Nuts and cinnamon spices, green onion, the creaminess and sharpness of goat cheese, good solid body holds it together.

    Big, earthy, and rubbery with some eucalyptus on the nose. Spicy full bodied front-end with a sweet long delicate finish. A nice complex petite sirah.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sourced from the upcoming Clarksburg appellation, The Crusher is a tribute to the fundamental relationship between the grower and the winemaker. From the vineyard to the crusher to your table, The Crusher captures the freshness of this world-class growing region, which is just beginning to emerge on the wine scene.

    Tasting Notes:

    The Crusher Petite Sirah 2008 pours a dark, inky purple— classically Petite Sirah. Breaking away from other hard, heavy Petite Sirahs, this wine’s aroma leaps out of the glass with fresh blackberries, toasted walnuts, and a toffee-like edge. It is incredibly aromatic and bright, like smelling a fresh rose. The wine transitions on the palate to rich, creamy blueberry flavors, a full-bodied, milk chocolate mouthfeel, and caramel oak nuance. Rich and soft, it evokes thoughts of cocoa butter and nutmeg. Velvety, mouth-filling tannins lead to a faintly sweet, strawberry finish. The bright, juicy fruit flavors of this wine are nicely balanced by its darker, caramel flavors and well integrated oak.
